By registering your event with ALS Association, we can offer businesses, organizations and individuals an opportunity to increase their recognition and outreach in the community.

Meet the Care Services Team

Meet the Care Services Team

The ALS Association Northern Ohio Chapter Care Services Team works to assist those with ALS and their loved ones to sort through the emotions and information that comes with a diagnosis of ALS/MND. The team, together with the client, creates a plan to address the needs identified as most important to the client and their loved ones. Starting with an intake interview, the care coordinator will identify areas of need such as information, referrals or support. The team members will respond to questions and concerns via phone, email or text depending on the communication preferences of the client. Information that may be discussed includes: information about the diagnosis, names of local and regional specialists and referral sources, research centers and clinical trial links, as well as determining your goals of care. The team can interface with the client and loved ones providing emotional support and guidance.  

The Chapter programs and services are geared to first provide desired information and if needed, financial assistance through Chapter and community resources. Our care coordinators are licensed professionals with extensive training in allied health care fields. It's all about meeting the client and helping each person figure out what's right for them and their family.

Join the Walk Planning Committee

Did you know that the Walk to Defeat ALS is the #1 way to unite and advocate for those living with ALS? Each year, the Walk drives bold and urgent innovation as we march together for a cure for ALS. No matter if you are living with ALS, a caregiver, parent, or sibling of someone with ALS, or are just someone who wants to support our mission, we encourage every one of you to get involved with one of our Walks.

One way to get involved is by joining our Walk planning committee. Meetings are held monthly to discuss not only Walk day logistics, but marketing and advocacy, corporate partners, and team development and fundraising. If you are interested in sharing your talents in any of these areas, please fill out our volunteer form and select Events under the Areas of Interest. Someone from our events staff will be in contact.
